We want ideas, tips, suggestions and best practices that improve a process. What we don’t want is proprietary information. For example, we don’t want the secret ingredient in a formula that gives the product a special property.
The ideas should focus on:
- Reducing wasted materials
- Reducing emissions
- Reducing energy usage
- Increasing quality
- Increasing capacity
- Increasing process efficiency
- Reducing usage of hazardous materials
- Reducing water usage
- Increasing production capacity
- Reducing downtime¹
¹Process upsets often result in significant amounts of waste generated. Ideas for reducing downtime and troubleshooting are included to help minimize process upsets.
